Uganda Cranes head coach John Duncan has named the 23-man squad to take on Zimbabwe in their final match of Africa Gold Cup on Saturday August 5, 2017 in Kampala.

Kobs winger Justin Kimono, who suffered a hamstring injury before their win over Tunisia, has recovered in time to start at right wing.

Kimono’s return sees sevens speedster Lawrence Ssebuliba drop to the blind side of the pitch.

Uganda are third with 11 points after two wins while Zimbabwe stay fourth after only one win.

The 4.30pm clash will be live on Kwese Sports.

Among other changes, Philip Wokorach is set to start at number 10 with Ivan Magomu’s injury only getting him a place on the bench.

James Odong, who has featured at 11 all season will play at 15 while Aaron Ofoyrwoth retains his number 9 jersey.

There is no starting place for Kenya Harlequin's Ronald Musajjagulanyago and Brian Asaba will pair up with Scott Oluoch in the back row.

Byron Oketayot gets to start at number 6 but Duncan has maintained his tight five led by team captain Brian Odongo.

Robert Aziku, who last played in the Elgon Cup first leg, is given a chance but will start from the bench.
